When Life Happens: Delta Launches 'Reclaim My Status'
Delta SkyMiles Medallion Members can now take advantage of "Reclaim My Status" following a change, event or important life moment has temporarily affected their travel patterns. Built from the ground up based on Member feedback, this is the latest thoughtful addition to Delta's Medallion program. While each situation will be evaluated on a one-on-one basis, major life events that impact travel may include Becoming a parent, including maternity, paternity, adoption or foster leave etc. How Reclaim My Status works When Medallion Members are ready to start traveling again after a big change, important life moment or event that affected travel and caused a loss of or change in Status, they should submit a request to get Medallion Status back at delta.com/reclaimmystatus. Most Members will receive a decision from Delta within five business days (but it can take up to two weeks) and if approved, they will enjoy three months of complimentary Medallion Status. Then, Members who meet the minimum travel and spend thresholds for that Status Tier over that three-month period retain their Status. The following are a couple of illustrative examples: If a Member enrolls in Reclaim My Status on or before Dec. 31, 2019, and meets the thresholds, Medallion Status will be extended through Jan. 31, 2021. If a Member enrolls in Reclaim My Status between Jan. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020, and meets the thresholds, Medallion Status will be extended through Jan. 31, 2022.
